Helping the old, the young and the abused
Three University of Manitoba (UM) professors have received Partnership Engage Grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) to rapidly investigate matters related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
These grants provide short-term and timely support for partnered research activities that will inform decision-making at a single partner organization from the public, private or not-for-profit sector.
“I congratulate the three researchers and their partner community organizations. Their collaborations to learn the effects of COVID-19 on at-risk segments of society are critical,” said Dr. Digvir Jayas, vice-president (research and international) and Distinguished Professor at UM.
